The Birds Cage Clock by Chanel showcased at Biennale of Antiquaires

Chanel never ceases to amaze us, and now, being involved in the Biennale des Antiquaires, in Paris, for the fifth time – the biggest jewellery event where all the greatest artists and houses showcase their finest pieces of jewellery – the brand saved for this exhibition several outstanding jewels from the summer collection of the unique ‘Café Society’ collection, which we saw in a previous post. This mini collection, created especially for the event, includes necklaces, rings and brooches, with Chanel’s recognizable motifs – camellias, chines motifs, lions and comets – but the outstanding jewel that Chanel introduces to us is “The Bird Cage Clock“, an exquisite piece of art – in white gold, adorned with rose quartz, diamonds weighing over 61 carats, grey and white pearls  – an ode to the captive beauty, romance and femininity.

The Birds Cage Clock by Chanel showcased at Biennale of Antiquaires

The inspiration source of the designers who created the masterpiece was a miniature jewellery birdcage housing two lovebirds, which Mademoiselle kept on a coffee table in her apartment on 31 rue Cambon. At the base of the sculpture of the birds – so detailed that for a moment you expect them to breathe with life – lies a pink framed camellia clock, with diamond bezel, trapped for eternity in this gorgeous white gold cage.
